Thursday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links May 13, 2014

It's potentially the Spursiest thing to ever happen.

Happy Thursday Spursland.  Isn't it a fine fine day?  Yeah, let me change that for you.  You see we all knew (or should have known) that this was a transitional year for us and the boys in white.  Next year, or probably the year after that, is when we will be, if all goes right, taking our shot at the big time and the top four.  Harry, Bentaleb, Dier, will all be more seasoned it will be our time.  Top four hear we come.  WELL IT PROBABLY WON'T MATTER. Because England are pretty close to losing their fourth champion's league spot.  As explained to me by SB Nation big wig, Cambridge alum, and Kim Jong Un admirer Graham MacAree, if English teams have another year like this year in Europa and the Champion's League our fourth slot goes to Italy.  So of course OF COURSE, you know it, I know it, Graham is counting on it, in two years we will finally finish fourth again, and England will immediately lose a champion's league place. [Editor's note: It is known.]
